    My film consist of original Trip 35,Trip MD3,OM1n OM2,OM2sp OM4, along wit OM10,OM20.OM30,OM40
    As any serious Oly users can see the OM3 is missing along with a couple of later models.
    So should anyone have a OM3 working not working battered or mint please get in touch:olympus:

    My Digital only started seriously last year with a OMD-EM5 MK II have added a OMD-EM 1 since 7 prime lenses and 3 zooms.

    For a little while I had an OM1, OM2, OM3 and OM4 all in black. OM3 was really, really nice but I don't see the value in their crazy prices now so I sold it in the end. Think I maybe liked OM1 the most just for its simplicity. Don't have any of them now as they started to become ornaments but do still use my 35 Trip a bit.

    Went on to own an OM-D E-M5 then a Mkii. Really nice cameras and I love the styling but a somewhat different user experience to the OM's!

    First dip of the toe was OMD E-M10 which lasted about 2 months before I upgraded to the E-M1
    Now I have the E-M10 mk2

    in theory, this means the E-M1 mk2 will follow :whistle:

    I've only ever owned the cutesy little Em5 mk1 - Lovely camera, really impressive IBIS for it's time and it was better in low light [slightly] than the G80 I replaced it with - which was mostly down to ergonomics. I don't get on well with cameras that lack good grip, crampy hand syndrome kicks in after a while

    I'd never owned or used an Olympus camera until a few days ago, when I took delivery of an ebay purchase of an E M10 (first generation) with a couple of lenses. This was a deliberate low cost foray into the brand to weigh up (literally and figuratively) what everyone here has been on about. I took it out yesterday for a short session by the canal with some industrial buildings. I'm not posting any images yet as they won't be up to much, it was more about getting a feel for the controls and use of it. I came away rather liking it, though wondering if it was a bit small for me (even though I have relatively small hands). It is a lovely little outfit though, and already I can feel the inclination to upgrade at some point.

    Sold my Canon FF gear and bought the Olympus EM5MK2 with 12-40 pro kit from HDEW.

    Best idea I've ever had.

    The results I'm getting certainly stand up well against the Canon's output

    Consider an optional grip, I have one on my mk2 and it transforms the handling

    still have a couple of trip 35's knocking about but apart from that they are the only olympus cameras i have ever owned film or digital
    i don't think the trips have seen a film for over 15 years it's been digital all the way for quite some time

    I got an E-M1 last year as a major upgrade to the D3300...since then I've picked up zoom lenses covering 14-100mm, and the 17mm & 45mm Olympus primes. Last week I also took delivery of an E-M5ii as my E-M1 needs to go in to repair the rear dial.

    I definitely prefer the E-M1 ergonomics but as a backup/2nd camera the E-M5 is pretty sweet.

    I had a small film compact; it is still here. I found it today looking for something else. However, last year I tried Olympus digital through the testing programme and now have a 2nd system to be my walkabout.

    In terms of film cameras, Olympus has always been my go to. Love my Om1, but my favourite camera is my Olympus 35RD.

    Got a bunch of OM cameras and the 35 rangefinder series.

    I only moved over to Olympus digital this year with the em5 mkii and now the EM1 mkii, which is a lovely camera.

    My list, in order of acquisition, is as follows:

    OM1, OM10, XA2, C1000L, C3000, E-PM1, E-PL5, OMD EM1 Mk1, OMD EM10 Mk1, E-PL6.

    The XA2, EPM1 and the E-PL5 were moved on, but I still own all the rest, even the C1000L is in working order and the C3000 has an underwater housing I used when doing SCUBA diving.

    Olympus AF-1 bought as an engagement present by my now wife in 1987, still with me (missus and camera)

    EM1 bought on a Monday, so much shutter shock it could probably register on the Richter scale, returned two days later for a refund.

    Lovely cameras, all of them, especially with a 14mm f2.5 lens.

    I keep going back to Oly because I love using them and then FF pulls me away again. I definitely miss the E-M1- probably the nicest camera I've ever used. And Oly's lovely lenses.

    Big wish would be for an updated E-P5, loved using that camera but don't like the Pen-F at all. New sensor and AF in an E-P5 body would be great, but ain't gonna happen.

    Initially: E-M5 bought as a smaller and lighter alternative to Canon FF
    Then: E-M10II (x2) + E-M1
    Now: E-M10II + E-M1 + E-M5II + E-M1II

    I use the E-M1 bodies with PRO lenses mainly and the E-M10II and the E-M5II with the smaller and lighter "consumer" zooms and primes.

    I won a Plastic 'Trip' which gave up , then Boy was given an XA2 and OM-2n by a Widow Lady , which i have now ;taken over; as all he uses is his blasted PHONE not a REAL CAMERA any more, then I WON a Compact MJU 760 Digital and was presented with it by Scruffy David Bailey ( who's HE ?? ) and gave that to Daughter -- now have 'Taken THAT over' as all SHE uses is her blasted PHONE, then gave 25 quids to Club Funds for a 'Super-Zoom 570UZ' from a Deceased Club Member, then another Club member gave me an OM-1 and OM-10 " Its not working, mirror up and shutter stuck but you can HAVE it " -- so I put in NEW BATTERIES ( as you DO ) and it all worked, so I lubricated cogs and levers in base-plates and renewed light seal strip foams and both are now very happy . Then an Old Gent 89 GAVE me cameras including a PEN EE half -frame. an XA and an 'Unused' E-500 with 2 lenses, then another Camera Club Member who I recruited has LOADS of gear inc Digital LEICA and Olympus but is not 'big-headed' and as a 'Thank You' for helping him GAVE me his 2003 E-1 with 45-54mm lens. So I have loads of Olympus gear now !!

    My first Olympus was a VG-110. Then I bought a PM-2. Having loads of fun with both. Each has an application and purpose which no single camera can cover. Low budget for sure. Cheers.
